The Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client allows you to connect to the Swinerton network when working remotely. Follow the instructions below to connect to (and disconnect from) the software installed on your computer.

Connecting to the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client

1. Make sure you have an active internet connection before starting (try browsing the web).

2. Open the Start menu.

3. In the search bar, type "cisco anyconnect" to find the AnyConnect client (or find it in the list of apps under C for Cisco, or in your pinned apps list). Open it.
If you do not have the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client installed then please check for it in your Software Center by following these instructions, install it yourself if you have administrative credentials by following these instructions, or contact the Swinerton BTech Service Desk.

4. The Cisco AnyConnect program window should then open above your system tray.  Make sure the network shows as "Swinerton Corporate" and click Connect

If you do not see the Swinerton Corporate option, enter "" in the network field and click Connect.  It may install updates to the program and require your credentials to install them.

5. If the client is able to reach the Swinerton servers it will show a login box. Enter your Swinerton credentials (your username should already be filled in).

6. After a moment the client will connect and a notification will appear informing you it's connected.

Disconnecting from the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client

1. Find the Cisco AnyConnect icon with a lock on it in your system try, down by the system clock.

2. Right-click on the icon and select Disconnect or left-click to open the program and click the Disconnect button.
